Psychology -- PSY 550: Finding Psychology Journals

  Databases for Locating Psychology Journals


PsycARTICLES – More than 70 full-text psychology journals published by the American Psychology Association.

Academic Search Premier – More than 4500 magazines and scholarly journals.  NOTE: Limit your search to "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" and possibly "Full Text".

JSTOR – More than 10 full-text psychology journals.  NOTE:  Scroll down and select Psychology from the list of available disciplines to limit your search to just psychology journals.

PMC - The U.S. National Library of Medicine's free full-text archive of biomedical and life-sciences journal literature.

Interlibrary Loan

If you would like the library to get an article for you that is not available full-text in one of our databases, fill out this request form.  It will take approximately 7 to 10 days for the library to receive the article, so make sure you allow ample time.

Google Scholar Search

When searching Google Scholar, make sure you choose journal articles, not books or other papers.  Most often you will find the abstracts of articles, rather than the full text.
